For the chicken
- 2 chicken breasts - boneless and skinless
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp black pepper
- 1/2 tsp dried rosemary
- 1/2 tsp onion powder
- 16 slices thin cut bacon
For the Brown Sugar Mix
- 3/4 cup dark brown sugar - well packed
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 tsp smoked paprika
- fresh parsley for garnish
Preheat oven to 350ºF/170ºC.
To aid clean up cover your baking tray with a layer of aluminium foil.
Place a cookie cooling rack on top of the baking tray, this allows the bacon to crisp on all sides.
Cut the chicken into 1 inch cubes (I aim for 16 small bites out of each chicken breast) and sprinkle over the salt, black pepper, rosemary and onion powder.
Tip the sugar in a small bowl adding in the salt and smoked paprika.
Cut the bacon slices in half (or into thirds if you have very long bacon)
Wrap each piece of chicken with a piece of bacon and secure with a cocktail stick.
Roll the chicken bites in the brown sugar mixture and place on the prepared rack.
Bake for about 30 minutes until bacon is crisp.
Garnish with chopped fresh parsley.
I served mine with a mustard maple dipping sauce, spiked with paprika.
